LibriVox recording of The Adventures of Ulysses, by Charles Lamb. Read by Rebecca.
Lamb used Homer’s Odyssey as the basis for the re-telling of the story of Ulysses’s journey back from Troy to his own kingdom of Ithaca. Not a direct translation and deemed modern in its time, Lamb states in the preface that, “I have gained a rapidity to the narration which I hope will make it more attractive and give it more the air of a romance to young readers”. (Summary by Rebecca)
